Yeah pretty much mate and the original purchase price to what I got it for is a massive saving for a car only doing 245 miles

Thanks mate I couldn’t believe it when it came up at such low mileage

When the warranty runs out fancy doing some tinkering on it ?

Well managed to get the car dropped into my mates work for the new oil cooler to be fitted

New front discs and pads I went for oem r32 discs as had trouble with the mtec discs again @Prawn I think is on the money when he he was saying about how these discs are put together and the aluminum bell and steel discs expanding at different rates.....I’ve went for rs14 pads ment to be as good as the rs29 pads until they get very warm like they would on track but work a tad better from cold so good compromise for the road so hope they work like I hope

Also new coil pack look getting spliced in and try get the exhaust moved a bit as seems to have relaxed and just slightly touching something

Will be good to get the old girl out a nice drive again soon

Could you do me a massive favour I started rebuilding mine but didn’t pay attention to the different pistons on one side the pistons have a deeper centre bore than the other side but I don’t know which go on what side

Above picture is of the outside of the caliper side that would be seen through the wheels and is the shallower center bore

Because I hadn’t drive the car for a while I had the tablet with me with torque app on just to look at coolant afr just to make sure things seem ok was in my lowest boost map and gave it a little squirt and seen the gauge going higher than I thought it should so backed off got home parked it up..next day went to have a look and see the number of the n75 valve to order a new one as I thought it was that but then I seen this

So trimmed the hose put it back on and made a note of this as one of the things to go on my regular checklist

Also gave the catch can a drain and took it back out and correct boost is back again...going to try get it into my mate who cleans cars to get the engine bay a little clean up

Nice to drive the old girl after driving a more modern car for a while
